Steinsson: Coyle decision justified

27 January 2010 03:46
Coyle had to cope with taunts of "Judas" from the travelling fans still hurt at his exit from Turf Moor at the beginning of this month.[LNB]However, the Glasgow-born boss got the victory he craved thanks to Chung-Yong Lee's fifth goal of the season.[LNB]In the process, Bolton moved out of the relegation zone and dropped Burnley into it for the first time since winning promotion under Coyle.[LNB]Not only that, the club chalked up a clean sheet for the first time this season in the Premier League.[LNB]Iceland international Steinsson said: "It was really important for us to win this game for him (Coyle) and maybe justify his decision to come here.[LNB]"It is also for us and now it is the time to look up as we are out of the relegation places.[LNB]"We did really well and defended solidly. I felt really confident we were not going to concede.[LNB]"A clean sheet is something we should be proud of and something we should have been doing more frequently this season.[LNB]"In my mind, we have got the strongest team since I have been here, so we have the players to go higher up the table."[LNB]Coyle is pleased with South Korea star Lee's progress following his arrival from FC Seoul in the summer.[LNB]With Vladimir Weiss and Stuart Holden also on board until the end of the season, Coyle is keen to change the dynamic of the side.[LNB]He said: "We are trying to bring in exciting players. There is no doubt that Weiss can play and Lee continues to excite.[LNB]"Weiss likes to get at full-backs and get crosses in while Holden has great energy and desire. He wants to show he can play in the best league in the world, so he is a young man with a point to prove.[LNB]"There is plenty to work with. It won't happen overnight, I don't have a magic wand and it takes hard work on the training ground.[LNB]"But the players are responding to the stuff we have implemented. However, this is just a start and we have to continue that progress."[LNB][LNB] Liverpool v Bolton. Click here to bet.
